Okay, I tested this on several photos to check that it wouldn't turn out so horrible (like my last tutorial), lol. It's quick and easy which means it isn't the best! But I think it provides a quick base to a photo so that you can further become more creative.

1! Open your picture. Duplicate it so you have two layers.
2! Your settings on the duplicated layer will be Colour Burn with 20% opacity.
3! Create a new layer. Fill this with ab7865. Set this to Pin Light at 100%.
4! Create another new layer. Fill this with 8d5a47. This takes care of light tones in the picture. Before you apply this layer look at the picture. See the white areas? This makes them not white to take away the mod (for lack of a better word) feel for the photo. It makes them more yellowish. Settings here are also Pin Light, 100%.

other notes! If you're going to toggle with opacity I would suggest keeping the two fill layers the same and keeping the duplicate picture layer under 35. However, if you have sunlight in your photo as the only sorce of light then perhaps lowering the opacity on the second fill layer will keep the light from becoming too orange. Again, everything depends on original lighting of the picture. I tested on a picture taking outside mid-afternoon, in my room with a bright light, a picture taken in a lighted room with flash, and a sunlit room with out flash and all turned out fairly good looking.

Please enjoy!

This seems like a very good tutorial but, maybe some preview pictures may attract more people to it. Just a suggestion though.
